Professional Tax Credit Program

Professional Tax Credit Program

New Mexico offers business-related tax credits to corporations and individuals who meet the requirements set out in the statutes for each credit.

The statutes creating the credits also designate the taxes against which the credit may be applied. Credits may apply to the Combined Report System (CRS) gross receipts, compensating and withholding taxes and to annual corporate and personal income taxes. This area of the site summarizes New Mexico’s business-related tax credits and the procedures for claiming them. General types of tax credits are:

  • personal income tax credits;
  • conservation and preservation tax credits;
  • general industry incentive tax credits;
  • specific industry incentive tax credits;
  • employment enhancement tax credits; and
  • gross receipts tax credits.

Please note that some credits have limited eligibility dates. The Taxation and Revenue Department cannot consider claims for periods prior to dates stated in the legislation or claims that are filed after the deadline has passed.

Please be aware that legislation, regulations, court decisions, revenue rulings, notices and announcements subsequent to the publication date may affect the information’s accuracy. You may apply credits only to tax liabilities designated by law. Some credits are refundable or transferrable.
